What is the recovery time after breast implant removal? - Breast implant specialist plastic surgeon in Los Angeles

Breast implant removal is not associated with significant recovery of downtime.  However the patients who request breast implant removal may also require additional surgery such as breast lift, breast reduction, removal of capsular contracture, repositioning of the nipple and areola, and replacement of a breast implant.  These secondary procedures can be performed at the same time and may have variable recovery rates ranging from one to five days.

The most invasive option after breast implant removal and replacement is the changing of the surgical plane from a subglandular to submuscular pocket.  This surgery may require more downtime, typically ranging from five to seven days.
